Hilarion – December 23 – 30, 2012

Standard

HilarionAnd so we now come into the new Golden age. We welcome you with great jubilation! The energies are still very intense and will continue in their activating activities. Every living being on Earth is being activated and attuned to the higher dimensional frequencies and this work will continue until each being is fully awakened in the new Light. It is your task individually and collectively, those who are already awake, to continue to shine your Light and help those around you as the need arises and is seen. You of the Light now hold an even more important position than before. You now begin to wield your Light into manifesting your vision for a better World in more powerful ways, because you yourselves are more powerful.You have come into this World to be OF this World. It is the embodiment in the human form that you have personally transformed into your greater form,  that was and still is required of each of you. As we move into the new year, each of you will be moving into the next steps of your personal destiny and will continue to come together in groups during various times to effect greater positive change in this World. The power of the many acting as One can produce many miracles and this will become more noticeable upon the planet.You will begin to gradually feel the heaviness of the lower dimensional energies lift from within your Beings and will find yourselves feeling happy and joyful in the most mundane tasks. As you practice mindful focus with all the senses of your higher self, you will begin to discover the previously unseen world that has always been around you. Some of you are already noticing clearer and brighter colors as you move about your area of the world. The sunshine seems whiter and brighter. Become observant of the world around you as you go about your daily routine, awaken your new senses through practice.Your combined efforts of Light work in the past year especially has enabled all upon this planet to safely move forward into the new galactic cycle now dawning on the new horizon for your planet and all her inhabitants. You have been and still are, very needed, to be grounded into the Earth acting as conduits for these more refined energies now flowing into your atmosphere. This will now become a much easier and more natural way of life because there will be a lessening of the energies of polarity and life on Earth in general will feel more filled with ease and grace.As the old paradigm continues to disintegrate and the old ways of doing business on this planet are no longer being supported by the new energy, a new tone of harmony, peace and cooperation will be seen in all people upon the Earth and this in turn will effect great and beneficent changes in all areas of life upon this planet. For now, we counsel, rest and relax with your loved ones and enjoy the rising energies. Laugh often and enjoy the closeness with those whom you love as you celebrate life!  We are with you always.Until next week…I AM Hilarion©2012 Marlene Swetlishoff/Tsu-tana (Soo-tam-ah) Keeper of the Symphonies of GracePermission is given to share this message as long as the message is posted in its entirety and nothing has been changed, or altered in any way and Scribe’s credit, copyright and website is included.   http://www.therainbowscribe.comThank you for including the above website link when posting this message.

Abortion and Reincarnation

Standard

ABORTION & REINCARNATION

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

WHY HAS CHRISTIANITY NOT TAUGHT REINCARNATION?

Origen (185-254 C.E.) was one of the most influential Christian thinkers of his time.  St. Jerome declared him to be “the greatest teacher of the Church after the apostles.”  St. Gregory of Nyssa calls him “the prince of Christian learning in the third century.[i]  Origen taught pre-existence of souls and reincarnation.

The Church Fathers disagreed vehemently as they sought to establish the new religion—Christianity.  All sorts of human motives clouded the issues.  Rather than simply allowing those who so desired to follow the teachings of Jesus, the ultimate goal of the Church Fathers was, according to Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons“the real Church has one and the same faith everywhere in the world.”  [ii]  The original source for this quote is Irenaeus’ Selections From the Work Against Heresies.  The quote and the title of Irenaeus’ book speaks volumes.

In 553 C.E., the Fifth Ecumenical Council condemned Origen and his teachings as heretical:  “If anyone does not anathematize Arius, Eunomius, Macedonians, Apollinarius, Nestorius, Eutyches, and Origen, as well as their heretical books, and also all other heretics who have already been condemned and anathematized by the synods which have already been mentioned, and also all those aforesaid heretics and who persist in their error even to death: let him be anathema.”  [iii]

Webster’s Dictionary defines anathema to be a “curse solemnly pronounced by ecclesiastical authority and accompanied by excommunication.”

WHAT IS REINCARNATION?

 Since there is controversy evident on the internet over whether or not Origen taught reincarnation, I’ll quote from the Gifford Lectures of the Reverend William R. Inge, past dean of Saint Paul’s Cathedral in London and a scholar of distinction:

“Origen takes the step which to every Greek seemed the logical corollary of belief in immortality—he taught the pre-existence of Souls.  The Soul is immaterial, and therefore, has neither beginning of days nor end of life….  So convincing is this Platonic faith to him, that he cannot restrain his impatience at the crude beliefs of traditionalists about the last day and resurrection of the dead.  The predictions in the Gospels cannot have been intended literally.  How can material bodies be recompounded, every particle of which has passed into many other bodies?  To which body do these molecules belong?  So, he says scornfully, men fall into the lowest depths of absurdity, and take refuge in the pious assurance that ‘everything is possible with God….’

 As for the ‘conflagration’ [at the end of the world], Origen, as is well-known, follows the Stoics in teaching … that there will be a series of world-orders.  But whereas Greek[Stoic] philosophy could admit no prospect except a perpetual repetition of the same alternate evolution and involution, a never-ending systole and diastole of the cosmic life, Origen holds that there is a constant upward progress.  Each world-order is better than the last….  The conflagration is really a purifying fire [iv]….  All Spirits were created blameless, all must at last return to their original perfection.  The education of Souls is continued in successive worlds. [v] 

Reincarnation is a natural expression of eternal life.  Origen’s teachings are based on Earth’s 3rd dimensional plane of duality where Earth humans have acquired negative karma while learning via the challenges found within an environment of good and evil.  This negative karma must be purified or balanced—thus all must at last return to their original perfection.  

Now that we are preparing to ascend to higher dimensions, reincarnation will occur differently.  On the higher dimensions, the soul may occupy the same body for hundreds or thousands of years … decide to discard it and rest … then take on another body and continue the work she/he has chosen to do.

Because the Church condemned as heretical a belief in and life orientation including knowledge of reincarnation, people of Western cultures have not known of their own pre-existence.  As a result, our entire theology and philosophy of life have been formulated in terms of one life to live.  This has resulted in Western societies not knowing who we are as human beings.  We conceive of life as beginning with conception and ending with physical death.  The traditional religious concept of eternal life is something like walking the golden streets of heaven for eternity orburning in hell for eternity.   We wonder why we are here … what is the purpose in life … we think, “surely there is more than this.”  We say we love God, but deep down we are afraid of a God who can do anything God wants to do.

WHAT DOES REINCARNATION HAVE TO DO WITH ABORTION?

Life on the 3rd dimensional plane of duality is based on the individual Soul Contract.  Before incarnating, each Soul—with the guidance of spiritual teachers/guides—plans the major events for the forthcoming incarnation.  These plans include selecting our parents and discussing plans with them.  No one is an accident … parents and future children already know each other.

While living on the 3rd dimension, we forget that linear time does not exist on higher planes … there is ONLY NOW.  We also forget that ALL CONSCIOUSNESS IS CONNECTED—communication with all beings is easy, regardless of where each being is located within the cosmos.  In fact, if we think it, we can be there.

We also tend not to know or forget that our Souls travel while our physical bodies sleep.  The individuals who have contracted to be our parents can easily meet with us on the inner planes while their physical bodies sleep.  In this way, we can keep up to date with what is going on with those who contracted to be our parents.

Soul contracts are not carved in stone.  The conditions in which our future parents find themselves can change.  A Soul contract includes multiple people, all of whom have freewill.  Both parents and future children have the opportunity to discuss whether or not they desire to continue in accordance with the Soul contract.  There is no punishment, no judgment for not doing so.  The purpose for incarnating is to grow spiritually according to each individual’s Soul needs.  It would be a waste of universal energy for a Soul to incarnate, knowing that the purposes for taking on a physical body could not be accomplished.

If physical pregnancy occurs, abortion does not mean that the unborn child is killed.  The unborn child is still in the higher realms and very likely has agreed to the abortion before it occurs. 

A funnel aptly illustrates the life of an unborn child.  The Soul of the unborn child remains in the higher realms, represented by the wide portion of the funnel.  Contrary to the one life to live concept of birth, the soul incarnating is free until the time of birth when it must enter the narrow part of the funnel in order to take on a physical body.

We on the 3rd dimension think of birth as joyful and it is for the family.  But the Soul has given up its freedom and open spaces.  Babies sleep a lot so they can return to higher planes and escape restriction.  Gradually, they adjust to the confinement and sleep less.

The newborn child also has the option of making changes in the Soul contract.  Each Soul is given a period of two years in linear time to evaluate the physical environment and determine how well his/her Soul’s reasons for incarnating can be achieved.  If the child so chooses, he/she can return to inner realms during the first two years of physical plane life.  We often call these “returns” crib deaths.  The parents are grief-stricken, while the child is joyful and free from life in the narrow portion of the funnel.

Depriving Western cultures of the knowledge of reincarnation has sadly been a means of control by the powers that be.  We are controlled by a fear of death, fear of extinction, fear of spending an eternity in a non-existent physical place called hell.  The fight over abortion serves to divert attention while the powerful carry on their undercover activities.  Think of all the energy that millions put into fighting over abortion, birth control, planned parenthood during the 2012 elections.

Lack of knowledge of reincarnation, the Soul contract, and the Soul’s ability to change that contract has created untold suffering.  This lack of knowledge has been a major means of enslaving Western cultures.

Our Mother/Father God knows only Unconditional Love and created a cosmos based only in that Love!  As we ascend into full consciousness, our access to all knowledge enters our awareness.  “Now I know only in part/ then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.” [vi]

ANSWER TO A MOTHER’S QUESTION

Angels of the World Mother

Painting from Geoffrey Hodson’s The Kingdom of the Gods

Question:  I can’t believe the Soul is not in the baby’s body during the gestation period.  My daughter has memories that I share of her time in the womb.

Answer:  The Soul of the future child can be very much present with the Mother while not being within the baby’s physical body.  Mother and child can communicate and do.  Enjoying the pregnancy, loving the unborn child, playing music for it … all can be a part of the process.  Our physical cells have memory and all of the experiences during gestation will remain in the cells’ memory.  The fact that the Soul does not enter the physical body until birth, or shortly thereafter, does not lessen the closeness that parents experience with their child during pregnancy.  The Soul is experiencing along with the parents, while remaining free of the restraints that come with entering a physical body.

My reason for writing the article was to help those who are so concerned over killing babies realize that there is no death of the Soul involved in abortion.  Death of the Soul does not exist.  Losing a child through miscarriage or abortion can be painful to the parents because on our present 3rd dimensional plane of duality, we are taught one life to live.  As a result, what we perceive as death holds a finality that is painful to bear.

Sadly, the lie that abortion = killing babies is propagated by those who seek control via manipulating and lying to the people.  This emotionally saturated issue can be used by the power elite to determine, or greatly impact, the outcome of events as huge as a presidential election.

Thankfully, when we ascend in a few short weeks, we will know that ALL IS CREATED WITH LOVE!

Michael and Amsa – Channeled by Ron Head

Standard

We bring you today a new visitor to these conversations.  May I please introduce Master Amsa.

Amsa is also known to you as Lao-Tse, and has had several other lives upon your planet.

Good day, dear friends.  If you are reading this, I assure you we have known each other at one time or another.  Michael has asked me to address you today for two reasons.  First, I am always direct and to the point, and second, I know from experience what it is like to be where you are today.

You are going through massive changes.  In addition to all of the things which I and others have had to undergo, you are also having to change your entire physical bodies.  This is no small task, yet you are doing it.  Yes, it is true that you are receiving infinite light and love from our Creator, and you are being sent love and aid from literally everywhere in the Universe; but it is also true that this would not be happening but for what you have managed to do for yourselves.

Now this brings me to the reason for my being here to speak plainly.  It is my purpose to tell you to awaken now to who you are and what you are.  You are each a creation of and a part of the Creator of All That Is, Source, I Am.  You are not, and never have been, beholden to nor less than any other.  You are a creator in your own right.  You have the right to be, to live, and to create whatever your heart desires.  You owe no other any more than your love, compassion, and respect.

If you look inside yourselves at this moment, you will find this being of whom I speak.  It does not take a great deal of deep thought or meditation.  Think with me.  What feeling comes rushing to the fore instantly when you are the subject of offensive behavior?  THAT person, that you, is the one of whom we speak.  You know, and have always known, that your true being is deserving of respect and love.

Now… I am not here to tell you to stand up and demand that from others.  I am here to tell you that the one person you need to receive that from is yourself.  Now, today, find a way to release forever all thoughts of unworthiness, of being undeserving, of being less than.  Acknowledge to yourself and accept that you are the loved and deserving creation of the Mother/Father God Creator of All That Is.  Banish all speech and thought from your life that would make you less than or unworthy of anything.

Do I sound stern?  I am trying to.  But I love you too much to, I suppose.  As I said, I have been where you stand today.  Every ascended one has had to pass this way.  These are not new things.  Perhaps that is why it is so difficult to grasp.  So I will say it in one more way and then leave you in peace.  You are not less than.  You are one with.  You are not less than.  You are one with.  Find that within you and rejoice in its truth.

I hope someday very soon to meet each of you and celebrate with you what you have accomplished.  Until then, go in peace and love.  Thank you for allowing me to speak.  Good day.

Sananda ~ Abide by Your Hearts ~ As Channeled Through Fran Zepeda ~ July 9, 2012


Dear beloveds, I come before you today to speak of Trust. There is much talk these days of this concept and issue. Many are wondering whom and what they can trust and many are getting disillusioned with matters of Trust.

Do not be discouraged, for it is in experiencing this that you are coming to a greater understanding of what is really true. However, the subject of Trust has always been a subject of emotion and sense of stability, and can often shake people to the core when they discover they feel a lack of trust, or betrayal.

Dear Ones, I am here to tell you that it all centers on your heart, not what you believe others have done or not done to shake your sense of trust. Being pulled away from your heart brings you down a rocky road of disillusionment, especially when you grasp at the words of others as Truth without running it through your heart first.

Please stay centered in your hearts and know that reality and truth changes with your perspective. That is why the only true litmus test is what you feel in your heart, what you know by becoming still and connecting with your Higher Self; the more you do this, the more you become integrated with your Higher Self and thus connected with Source, and there will not be so much discrepancy in what you observe and experience.

Abide by your Hearts now and always.  As you meditate more and be still more, you will find yourselves connected with higher knowing, higher Truth that cannot be swayed by others’ perspectives and realities.

Remember that you create your reality. Yes, you have heard this many times, but the time to really get it is Now, dear Ones, in these rapidly changing times. Observe with compassion what is going on around you, but please attempt not to be pulled in by it. Go back inside your Heart and your Soul, your Center, and dwell there and see what is going on through those eyes, through that window of Truth.

This will make all the difference as you negotiate the twists and turns of the changes throughout this year. Remember that many have their own view and visions of what they want to happen. However, the one common denominator that will hold a framework for what you manifest as a collective is knowing that you are all connected and that you all come from the same Source, based on a powerful and abiding Unconditional Love and Respect for all Beings.

You are experiencing the end of duality, so there will be many fragments of duality still contaminating your new higher consciousness. It is important to not be pulled back to the elements of that old reality: judgment, separateness, right/wrong and subjectivity.

It is time to focus on Harmony, Love, Cooperation and Compassion for All Beings, even the ones you deem as negative or harmful or who you believe have harmed you. Judgment has the strongest foothold still from duality; it brings you to one side or the other, without allowing you to experience the real truth of the situation and without allowing you to flow with the Now and create what it is you really want, versus what you believe is entrenched.

My beloveds, you have come so far. The quagmire you face now is to sift through what is still of duality and what is of a higher knowledge based on the Light coming from the Great Central Sun, The Galactic Sun. Tap into that higher intelligence that you are more and more able to tap into with the alteration in your Light Bodies, which is taking place as we speak, has for some time now, and will be rapidly accelerating over the next months.

It is time to let go of the remaining vestiges of duality, staying detached as much as possible, while centering yourself in your Heart of hearts that all compose the One Heart of Source, of All That Is.

Filter out what is of the old way of thinking as much as you can. It is presenting itself in spurts and may be confusing you. Filter it out and raise it up and look at it from your higher perspective, dear Ones. Don’t get caught up in what is disintegrating as we speak. Question and examine your thoughts constantly, and stay in the Moment of Love and Light you were born to experience, what you came here to experience, now and forever.

I AM Sananda, and I am always at your service.

Thank you to Sananda.

I have recently posted how important maintaining balance from within will in turn, help with our health issues.  Learning to transmute life’s lessons into important karmic healing is a must in order to achieve the level of Spirituality we ALL desire.  Negative emotions and fears, bleed into our subconscious and the body reacts, sometimes with horrible diseases and dilemma’s.  Ignoring these energies will get us no where, however, I feel acknowledging these feelings, dealing with our reactions, and moving on to a more balanced moment in our reality.

Be safe, feel LOVEd, and above ALL realize the lessons we are taught in this incarnation, are necessary to bring us back to the truly Spiritual Beings we were intended to be.

LOVE and Light in the Greater Works, and on every level.
